2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Traverse than the GMC Acadia. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the GMC Acadia, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the GMC Acadia, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the GMC Acadia, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia. The Chevrolet Traverse has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the GMC Acadia.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Acadia.
